Justin K's 2006 Impreza Limited Wagon STI

Member #43690

Car Description:









My Subies name is Liz and she is a 2006 Subaru Limited WRX Wagon. She is my daily driver. I bought a 2007 Subaru STI that was wrecked. I decided to make the Subaru STI wagon that Subaru should have imported.

I swapped everything over from the STI including the full harness (which was a pain because not only did I have to strip the interior but I had to depin and repin the wagon body harness into the STI harness). I even kept the OEM intercooler sprayer. Obviously I retained the nice STI dash pieces as well, but I did not use the blue interior as I think the black limited interior looked cleaner. I even swapped the fuel tank. The only STI parts I did not use was the seats, carpet, door cards, and obviously the wing

Like all cars we fall in love with, she has snowballed into a full blown racecar. She's been accepted into boxerfest for 3 years straight now, but unfortunately couldn't make it for 2023 due to lifting both heads. However, this year, she is on version 3 of the build. There has been no corners cuts. She's practically finished, just needs a tune, but she'll have that before boxerfest. I only have progress pictures right now, but the last pictures are what she is looking like.

This is my baby, and I have a lot done to her. All of the work has been done by me. Liz is wrapped in Teckwrap Gunsmoke Grey with yellow accents (Brembos and intake manifold powder coated yellow among other things). There are a lot of little things that make this a one of a kind build.

Other notable things I have done: provo mirrors, JDM auto folding mirrors (that was a pain to get to function correctly with key fob) 2012 STI steering wheel with all buttons functioning that make her 1 of a kind.
